Valerie Wiest

New mom and longtime fitness enthusiast, Valerie, began doing Pilates over 10 years ago at age 14. A former dancer and self proclaimed “gym rat” Valerie’s dedication to fitness is apparent in her classes. Although Valerie graduated as a language triple major from the University of Maryland in 2009, she found her true passion in teaching fitness classes. Driven by her desire to instill a love of exercise in others, she got certified to teach through PHI Pilates. In her pursuit of being a better instructor, Valerie also got recertified through Peak Pilates in 2013. In addition to her Pilates certification, Valerie is an ACE certified personal trainer, certified Beyond Barre instructor, and a certified spin instructor.


As the mother of a young child Valerie knows that the best workouts are efficient, making the most out of the time you have. Her teaching style is a testament to the fact that fitness classes can be challenging, efficient, effective and fun. Valerie practices what she preaches and uses a combination of Barre method, pilates and cardio and weight training to stay in shape. And it works!-- Who else do you know that walked out of the maternity ward wearing their pre-pregnancy jeans?
